ASTR 105: The Solar System
This course is an introduction to the solar system. Topics studied will include the motions of the night sky, the historical and scientific underpinnings of the Copernican revolution, and a look at our modern understanding of the bodies that make up our solar system, including planets, dwarf planets, moons, asteroids, comets. The course will also explore how and what we know about planetary bodies orbiting other stars. Prerequisite/Corequisite: ASTR 106 or permission of instructor. Offered every fall.
ASTR 106: N/The Solar System Laboratory
A laboratory experience to complement the material covered in ASTR 105. Lab activities will include analyzing and interpreting data on Kepler’s Laws, optics, and planetary systems. Prerequisite/Corequisite: ASTR 105 or ASTR 100. Offered every fall
PHYS 123: Analytical Physics I
